Katie Says: When I still lived in upstate New York, I used to take the train down to Manhattan just to attend the Teen Author Reading Nights. At one reading, David Levithan read from Love is the Higher Law, his novel about 9/11. It remains one of the most beautiful books I have ever read. I also had the pleasure of meeting David Levithan when he and John Green visited Symphony Space on their Will Grayson, Will Grayson tour. He is not just a talented writer, but also a really nice guy!
